Prediction Of Post Operative Pain Following Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery
Following arthroscopic shoulder surgery a small but significant number of people suffer severe postoperative pain.
This study aims to predict which patients are at risk of developing severe post operative pain so that they may be targeted with a more aggressive post operative pain regimen.
|Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery Pain Threshold||Device: Electrical pain threshold measurement Device: Measurement of electrical pain threshold|
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Screening
|Official Title:||PREDICTION OF POST OPERATIVE PAIN FOLLOWING ARTHROSCOPIC SHOULDER SURGERY|
- Post operative pain level [ Time Frame: 4 days ]Post operative pain level recorded on a VAS (0-10) at rest and movement for the first four days pots shoulder surgery. This information will be correlated with the preoperative pain threshold of patients taken with the Pain matcher machine.
